New books!

I have been reading a lot of Amish fiction this summer. The author I like the most is Beverly Lewis, my next favorite  is the Guideposts Amish Mysteries.  They are sent to me every month, and have the same cast of characters, but different authors every month.  I like the Amish fiction because it is clean. No smut, or "sex scenes". I like descriptions in a book, not "mushy-stuff". Some of the Amish books are even set in Ohio, where I was born. I remember seeing Amish buggies every summer when we would visit my Aunts and Uncles. Wow!  Anyway, after reading a lot of Amish books this summer, I decided to switch back to my most beloved mysteries. The books, Scottish Highlands Mystery by Hannah Reed caught my eye on and I ordered one. I loved it!! So I ordered the other two. The only bother is that they are only in paperback, and the print is small. (Break out the magnifying glasses that my daughter bought me, haha.) The above photo is from  Great reading!!  Have a blessed day!

New fence

Due to the fact that my daughter's two male dogs prefer to run away and play at the park with visiting kids & families at the waterfall (they have done it several times now, with complaints), my daughter had to install fencing around about a third of her property to keep them in (hopefully). It took a lot of hard work on her part, and the volunteer work of a co-worker, relative, and kind Mormon volunteers. Even as I write, I bet those two devil-dogs are plotting and planning how to escape. I'm afraid I don't have any more patience or sympathy for them. I pray this is the end of the story.
